Is Victoria Beckham’s Vogue Australia Cover Outstanding — or a Photoshop Disaster? (Forum Buzz)

We’ve been waiting for this one to drop ever since we were treated to a tidbit in our Cover Rumor Thread and the wait is finally over. Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Vogue Australia like never before. Captured by master of portraits Patrick Demarchelier with styling from Christine Centenera, everyone’s favorite pop star-turned-fashion designer wears an intriguing Louis Vuitton creation.

Yet our forum members were left with mixed feelings. “This is awful. Her head looks disproportionately large for her body. It’s freaky. Also she looks depressed,” MyNameIs announced, clearly not a fan of what’s on offer.

“Her awful facial expression throws me off. This could be a perfect cover, but her facial expression ruins everything,” condemned fluxxx.

Also not feeling it was Creative: “It looks like they cut the head from another picture and Photoshopped it on the dress. Creepy. And the dress looks 2D while her head looks too 3D. So weird.”

“Given how overwhelming the LV dress is, it does look like they Photoshopped Victoria’s head onto the cover haha. That being said I do love the direction – the way that strand of hair curls around the byline is pure magic,” shared Cosmic Voices, shedding light on the cover as things started to shape up.

“What a stunning portrait. Victoria and Demarchelier add so much drama to this odd LV dress. This feels much lighter than the past VA covers (last August was just as great),” Benn98 admired.

Miss Dalloway was in love too, raving, “LOVE this (a bit Gertrude Bell, no?), when would you EVER see VB wear something like this? Her face expression goes perfectly with the styling, and feel of the cover.”

Good job Vogue Australia? Check out some previews of Victoria’s cover story and join our discussion here.

Sarah Jessica Parker Is Sorry About That ‘Sex and the City 3′ Rumor

SJP’s first time gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan, say what? We couldn’t believe it either, but it’s definitely one that Carrie Bradshaw would approve of. (And Kim Kardashian too, given the sexy cleavage shot.)

In the accompanying article, Sarah Jessica Parker talks about the fact that people are still fired up over her alleged Sex and the City 3 rumor on Instagram back in May. “Oh my god,” she says, “When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I’m not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there’s no movie?” Sorry fans, there really is no third movie in the works. 
 
Parker is also passionate about having access to proper healthcare in America. “The thing that would change people’s lives maybe more than anything, assuming that we maintain access to health care, is child care,” she says. “If I could guarantee every mother who is working two, three jobs that she had good child care that didn’t make her anxious all day—people would probably work in more efficient ways.”
 
And she touts being a humanist instead of a feminist, as she believes it would create a stronger force. “I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles,” said Parker. “People of color, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space. I’m not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done—but I don’t think it’s just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement.”
 
With this being her first Cosmopolitan cover, she’s definitely covering some serious ground. Check out her behind the scenes cover shoot video below.

At just 23 years old, British-born model and actress Suki Waterhouse has a rather impressive resume. She’s currently the face of Burberry and has appeared on the covers of Vogue UK, Vogue Turkey, LOVE magazine and more. And if that’s not enough, Redken 5th Avenue has just appointed her its latest brand muse. 

Redken taps the trendiest and hippest models, hairstylists and colorists to partner with, so signing Waterhouse made perfect sense for the brand. She’ll be the face of the new Glow Dry style-enhancing blow-dry oil, which debuts in salons in August. “Suki is known for her chic style and effortless cool,” says Shane Wolf, Global General Manager of Redken 5th Avenue. “She’s striking, multi-talented, and dynamic. She brings a great energy to Redken.”

And from what we can tell, Redken’s Glow Dry oil is going to he a huge staple for maintaining healthy, gorgeous locks. “During summer, I really believe in embracing the heat and what it does to your hair, the texture that a little sweat makes,” Waterhouse said. “Make it part of your hair texture. I like a messy look. I use Redken’s new Glow Dry style-enhancing blow-dry oil on damp hair and then blow-dry it in to help give my hair a little extra sheen and silky feel.”

Looks like Britney Spears did it again. The singer took sons Jayden James, 7, and Sean Preston, 9, to Disneyland over the July 4th holiday weekend and recreated her nostalgic Oops!…I Did It Again album cover via Twitter after spotting a beaded curtain in the park. The snap reads: “The boys and I doing our best #Oops album cover pose!” 

And while it may be a long shot from the original album cover, we can’t help but take a trip down memory lane. Oops! was Spears’ second studio album and featured top hit singles “Oops!…I DId It Again,” “Lucky” and “Stronger.” Can you believe that was over 15 years ago? 

Following recent split from Charlie Ebersol BritBrit has been doing a fantastic job taking care of her two sons — and she definitely wins coolest mom award for this one.

It was only a matter of time, right? Renegade Collective magazine has broken the mould in print media by using a celebrity-free Instagram snap as the magazine’s front cover for Issue 23. “To my knowledge, we are Australia’s first major glossy magazine that has ever put an Instagram image on the cover,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Lisa Messenger, said.

The decision has been “a long time coming”, with Lisa explaining that she needed to prioritise her readers and the entrepreneurial magazine’s ethos above what sells well. “I have a love-hate relationship with placing celebrities on the cover,” she said.

“We know they do sell magazines but deep in my heart, I also know The Collective is about all people and that most of the people we interview are very much cover worthy because of who they are and what they are doing; they just don’t always have the public profile to match it,” she said in a press release.
